Fans were abuzz Wednesday over an accusation leveled through a Kansas City TV sportscaster. The fan, who wasn't identified by the sportscaster Tuesday night, said Haley flipped him off while walking into the tunnel right after Sunday's 41-34 home loss to the Cleveland Browns.
Haley responded Wednesday, saying he appreciates Chiefs fans and wouldn't disrespect them. He said he has five children to be a role model for and that making obscene gestures to fans isn't the way he behaves.
Haley said, "That's not something I do, would do, want to do, or want to be thought of as doing."
